What ya listening to?

Gene Krupa was my primary reason 4 getting my first Blue pearl Slingerland kit, w double toms.
Being a drummer boy in my many schools growing up, I had access to all manor of percussion instruments. I really enjoyed
using the different drums that took your hands.


I believe great drummers were born to drum. ;)

Of course, I had to check if she had done any Rush covers. The REAL test! Ha!

Since @Michele posted her "all-time favorite".... If I had to pick an all-time favorite song as my "anthem," it's Joe Walsh's "Life's Been Good."

Here's an awesome rendition of it at "Daryl's House" (Daryl Hall's hangout).

More of "The Professor" Neil Peart. A different drum solo. The tom work at the beginning is so "tribal" and appeals to the primal man in me. Then the bass and cymbals flurries come next. The cowbell piece at about 3:00 shows his prowess as more than a drummer... a percussionist.

At 3:50, he switches over to the electronic set.... and shows off his interest in creating different sounds.... an innovative percussionist.

At 7:00... he goes all jazzy! A true talent. Worth watching all the way through.

Watch! Just amazing.

This is another really fun episode at "Daryl's House" with Tommy Shaw of Styx.

Check out how great Tommy Shaw looks. He's 65 at this point. And, then listen to his vocal chops. Dude can still crush it!

Renegade! (Then "Too Much Time on My Hands")
